Summer Camp Staff 2017


 We realize that your children are of utmost importance to you! Therefore, we take great care and concern in hiring the camp staff that will be working with them. The staff hiring process begins in March of each year and the hired staff (who have completed a safety screening process), must then attend a youth leadership class / camp training class with Camp Director Karen Graef. They must pass a safetly police check and the State of Michigan's CAN (Child, Abuse & Neglect clearance).

What staff is used at Summer Camp?

The entire camp week is run under the Leadership of: Camp Director - Karen Graef, Pastor & Director of Education. All staff are connected through the use of radios 24x7.

Each cabin is staffed with a Junior Counselor (Junior or Senior in High School: 16-18 year old) and a Senior Counselor (must have completed at least one year of college: 18-25 year old). Camp counselors are hired and screened through Chapel Lane.

The High Ropes Course and the Horse Corral are hired professional staff under the direction of Camp Sancta Maria.

The arts & crafts area, athletics and the musical production are staffed through Chapel Lane.

The Waterfront is staffed by Red Cross Certified Lifeguards and the waterfront usage in monitored very closely. The waterfront safety is so crucial to us that it is under the direction of both Camp Sancta Maria and Chapel Lane.

The camp kitchen is run and staffed by the Head of Foods for the Gaylord School System. All dietary needs are considered, so please advise us if your child has special dietary needs. The kitchen is under the direction of Camp Sancta Maria.

The infirmary is staffed by an RN who is available 24 hours to administer medical care to your child. In the case of any emergency that can not be handled on site, your child will be transported to a Gaylord "Urgency Care", eight minutes away, or the Gaylord Hospital which is 15 minutes away.

Who is my camp counselor this year?

The hiring process for camp begins in March of every year. As this is an extensive screening process, Camp Counselors are not identified until May of each year. Please check back in May to find the counselors in your cabin.
